Why do we have silent letters in the English language ?* 

In an alphabetic writing system, a silent letter is a letter that, in a particular word, does not correspond to any sound in the word’s pronunciation. Silent letters are the ghosts of pronunciations past. The word ‘knight’, with its silent ‘k’, and silent ‘gh’, is cognate with the German word for servant, ‘knecht’, where every letter is pronounced. 

Process occurs when we borrow words from other languages. ‘Tsunami’ was borrowed from Japanese, and ‘psychology’ was borrowed from Greek. The initial consonant sounds in these words are not used in English, at least to start words. English ends words with those clusters, though: ‘hats’, ‘chops’. The initial ‘p’ in ‘psychology’ (and ‘pterodactyl’, and other words from Greek) has become silent in English. Some English speakers – not all – simplify the word ‘tsunami’ by not pronouncing the initial ‘t’, so that it fits in with the phonological rules of English.

How does water come from mountains?

Mountains are often called nature’s water towers. They intercept air circulating around the globe and force it upwards where it condenses into clouds, which provide rain and snow. Mountains also store water in various ways, including the formation of snow and ice.

HE Cheddi Berret Jagan (Born: 22 March 1918) Port Mourant, Guyana was a Guyanese politician and dentist who was first elected Chief Minister in 1953 and later Premier of British Guiana from 1961 to 1964. He later served as President of Guyana from 1992 to his death in 1997. Jagan is widely regarded in Guyana as the Father of the Nation.

He was the eldest of 11 children. His parents were Indians who were Kurmi Hindus[2] that emigrated from British India to British Guiana as indentured labourers. They were both from the Basti district in the then North-Western Provinces in the Bhojpuri region of the Hindi Belt in British India (in present-day Uttar Pradesh, India).

Cumin seeds contain naturally occurring substances that work as antioxidants. It means that these substances (called apigenin and luteolin) keep the tiny free radicals that attack healthy cells from being successful. Antioxidants help you feel healthier and more energetic, and they help keep your skin from looking aged.
